Finished my cowl (I love it; I hope Mom4x does) but looking for goodies is on hold because some pathetic loser stole my debit card number and charged $350 worth of photo and movie software. The bum! So I have not been buying anything as I wait for my new debit card to arrive, trying to stretch out the $35 or so I had in my wallet. I just can't seem to get to the bank during working hours to get some money out at a teller.

 

And this was the weekend of the Columbus Day yarn sale at Jo Ann's. Sigh.

Oh no! Thats terrible! There are some horrible people in this World. :(

 

I've mostly finished my cowl for idagammy but I'm having to wait for another skien of yarn to arrive. One of the ones I was sent was unravelled. Not the skien but the actual yarn! It was just a big mess of fluff inside! So, I'm waiting for a replacement. :)

Oh wow...can't believe the things people do.  SO sorry your card number was stolen, hope your bank has the fraud protection.  

 

Can't wait to see the cowl... yours is on the hooks.  I really like the way its turning out so far, just hope I like the finished product....lol....

Oh yea, the bank credited my account as soon as I called them, which was just a few days after the purchase had been made. They were great. I'm not responsible for any of it.

 

I really like how your item came out. I'd not used this particular yarn before and it was so soft and smooth, I love it.

Look at these two (two! Lucky spoiled me!) fabulous cowls that Mom4x sent me. This beautiful red one with a little sparkly in it matches my shiny red winter coat perfectly, and the Solomon's knot one is perfect for our mild winter. I love them both, and can't wait to wear one. It might be a while, though, since it was 91 on Saturday :(. She also sent me a knitting magazine, and a skein of the yarn she used for the red cowl (I love CSS and haven't seen this Party line), and a skin of silvery Spangle, which I must turn into something for New Year's.

 

Thanks, Mom4x! I love them both and my new yarn to play with.

Thank you idagammy for my lovely brown scarf. I love the yarn with the little bits of colour in it. Its going to go really well with my winter coat.

Also thank you for the brown square for my choc-themed friendship ghan. :):hug
